KELLERKIND   Julia Ocker

anim: 9'30 GER 2012  

A woman lives all alone outside of a village. And all alone she gives birth to a child. But then she realizes that this child is strange.

Per la capacità di suscitare emozioni profonde in maniera essenziale, scarna, con l'uso sapiente di un tratto pittorico apparentemente grossolano ma che rende con estrema drammaticità il dolore e il terrore della differenza. Per la sceneggiatura perfettamente congeniata che segue il processo di accettazione di una maternità diversa e mostruosa da parte di una donna sola. Ed infine per la creazione sonora che rifugge dai facili sentimentalismi e sostiene abilmente l'angoscia crescente. 

NO WORDS - SPECIAL MENTION

DER PINGUIN  Annette Jung  

anim: 7'00 GER 2012

 

 

The Penguin is bugging an Eskimo couple, it all ends up in a massive splatter scenario. Based upon the comic „Der Pinguin“ by Walter Moers.

 

Per lo spudorato anticonformismo della sceneggiatura e soprattutto nella scelta del personaggio principale: un pinguino serial killer erotomane ed eroinomane che in un crescendo di azioni sorprendenti, disgustose e raccapriccianti suscita nello spettatore una dirompente ilarità.

Virtuos Virtuell    Thomas Stellmach & Maja Oschmann

exp/anim:7'20 GER 2013

 

Abstract ink drawings seem to come out of nowhere. Following a secret choreography, they take on characteristics and moods of the music and narrate a story that appears to be laid out in the music. The interplay of timid encounters and dynamic pursuits, the agile lightness and confrontation, awakens a multitude of associations e.g. of birds, plants or the under-water world, which in turn stimulates many different emotional impressions.
